1Stepchild and Ex calling the shots
I have been with my current partner for approximately 18 months. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship and he has a 10 year old son from a previous relationship, which visits every 2nd weekend. I have been a big one with raising my kids with manners, respect for their elders. Where my partners son doesn't use them or want to use them. We even have trouble with getting him to eat normal meals (not take out). Which drivers my daughter insane. My partner and myself have tried to approach mister 10s mum for help and she doesn't want to help or support us. Which causes my partner and his ex to fight and argue.
My partner currently lives in a one bedroom apartment which I have helped furnish to accommodate enough beds for everyone if we happen to stay. He son has decided to say he doesn't feel comfortable sleeping here with us there to. As he says he feels that he doesn't have his own personal space. He only wants his dad and him to be there. Which this is only a temporary thing until his dad's Lease runs out in June and we are looking at moving in together. Which myself and my daughter will be moving to the northside of Brisbane, so he is still close to his son. My daughter will be moving away from her school and friends. I don't want to up root myself and my daughter if this behaviour is going to continue. As master 10s mum always seems to call the shots, to keep master 10 happy and my partner seems to jump to her demands. As she uses master 10 as a pawn.
I have booked a weekend away and the accommodation will be a similar set up as my partners place. He says that he will be fine with being there. I feel he uses the personal space thing as an excuse when it suits him.
I feel like I'm losing my mind.
Am I over reacting??
